You may be thinking that 30 days seems like a LONG time to be doing extra activities during a very busy time of year. I totally get it! The holidays can get hectic and crazy.

The busyness of the holidays is the very reason this 30 days of family Christmas activities challenge is important. We get so caught up in everything that needs to be done we can actually forget to spend time with the people who matter the most!

The good news is that I am FLEXIBLE and I realize you (or I) may not get every single item on this printable completed. We may stretch it out over 45 days. The key is that we are being intentional about spending time with our family making important and lasting memories!

Remember some of these activities don’t take very much time to complete and many of these activities you do every year!
